Aiken Standard, Thomas Gardiner: A 16-year-old international nuclear nonproliferation agreement fell apart, rendering the future of weapons-grade plutonium processing in the U.S. and at the Mixed Oxide Fabrication Facility at the Savannah River Site uncertain. The agreement’s demise could take enough plutonium for 17,000 warheads out from under the oversight of international nuclear experts. South Carolina U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott called the White House’s efforts to shut down the MOX program disastrous. The US government's intentions to down blend weapons grade plutonium and bury it in the ground instead of using it in commercial reactors is a wilful act to reduce having plentiful, clean nuclear energy, similar to decisions to stop development of fast reactors. The world goes on without us.
